Special Sessions

Click here to submit your proposal for a special session!

We are inviting delegates to propose and convene special organised sessions for ECSA 58 - EMECS 13.

The selection of session proposals will be highly competitive and priority will be given to sessions that address the overall ECSA 58 - EMECS 13 theme and are at the cutting-edge of current estuarine and coastal science.

ECSA encourage innovative sessions and formats including, but not restricted, to oral presentations, posters, workshops, practitioner forums, panels and discussions. Session timeslots can be flexible to accommodate alternative formats.

Sessions may be sponsored by relevant institutes, organisations and research groups (see sponsorship section), however sessions do not need to be sponsored in order to appear in the programme. Special session organisers will participate (along with the ECSA 58 - EMECS 13 Scientific Committee) in soliciting and selecting session contributions.

Completed session proposals should include details of the conveners, a session title and a brief description of the session content (in no more than 200 words). This description must highlight how the session addresses the overall conference theme and why the session is of critical importance to the estuarine and coastal scientific community.

The deadline for proposing a session for ECSA 58 - EMECS 13 is 6 November 2019.

If you have any questions about proposing a session for conference, please the Conference Content Coordinator at 

Please note that the cost of convener and speaker/presenter attendance in accepted special sessions will not be covered by ECSA 58 - EMECS 13.
